"My time on the RV Falkor has been unbelievable so far. Amazing people, inspiring science, and breathtaking ocean as far as the eye can see. I am set up with a painting space in the wet-lab, surrounded by scientists, ocean mud, chemicals, and a wide array of colorful test tubes and equipment. It is an active place and the perfect space for creating direct paintings about this important ocean research. I have two paintings in the works right now and look forward to getting into many more during my time aboard! "   ~ Adam Swanson
